Most of us can't even watch our old home movies without vomiting from dizziness, let alone sit through an hour and a half long movie with the same visual style. For me, Josh Trank perfectly executed not only the cinematography, but the intimacy that it evokes with regards to the characters in Chronicle. If only he could've done the same with his Fantastic Four movie...and also not choked Miles Teller. I'll break this movie down into three parts. ACTING/CAST - Effing perfect. Michael B. Jordan (before we all realized that this dude an absolute savage when it comes to his talent) steals every scene he is in, and his chemistry with Dane Dehaan and Alex Russell reminded me of the kids at my high school when they weren't shoving me into a locker. It's clear that Trank understands the dynamic that adolescents have with one another, and Max Landis knows how to write for them as well. STORY/PLOT - With such a short runtime, things come at you fast. The creative ways that Landis and Trank find to involve the camera in everyday situations is incredibly clever and allows you to fully immerse yourself in the story. We are introduced to these characters and quickly shown their motivations and set off on their arcs. The finale/climax is earned, and honestly I'm not sure how Trank was able to pull off what he did with what I'm assuming is not a tentpole budget. REWATCHABILITY - Don't get me wrong, what Trank was able to pull off here needs to be commended. He created strong relationships between the audience and his characters, but because or how morose everything in this movie is I'm unable to revisit it very often. I'm not saying at all that a movie has to be full of fairies and ponies for me to give it strong marks here, but when the main character is getting abused mentally and physically by his father in a third of his scenes, it's not exactly something I get jacked up to throw in the Blu Ray player. All in all, on it's five year anniversary of release, I view Chronicle as a genre film that has aged well like Diane Lane or Hellen Mirren. I commend Josh Trank for doing something unique and taking a chance with this film. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go out into the woods and search for an alien artifact so I can get the badass powers displayed in this film.

Eric R (mx) wrote: To Die Like A Man tells the story of Tonia, a homosexual transvestite (check if this is accurate) whose is in constant struggle with himself. The film studies Tonia's complex feelings of being stuck inbetween being everything he wants to be in a female, but yet knowing that he truly will never be one. Tonia feels alone in the world. His boyfriend, Rosario, is a drug addict who is not very supportive or even nice. Her son is in denial of his own homosexuality and he takes this anger out on Tonia, pretty much disowning him. Tonia's own body seems to reject the notion of being a woman. Music plays an intricate rule in expressing Tonia's state of mind. Being a show dancer and singer, there are quite a few scenes in which Tonia is shown singing these slow, somber songs in which the viewer and read between the lines for meaning in Tonia's own experiences. Visually the aspects of the film in which Tonia controls are very bright and vibrant, specifically her apartment, which reminded me a lot of Almodavar film in its production design. Visually its well done and even has some phallic symbolism in a few places as another way of looking into Tonia's emotional state. The films tragic end really wraps up this tortured soul perfectly, as he reflects on his failures as a father and desires which never were fully realized. To Die Like A Man is an emotionally complex tragedy which gives a unique viewpoint into a character which is rarely examined.

If you don't like it, shoot some heroin and watch again and again. It's epic, it's funny. Funny? Funny how? Yeah, I tell you, and i have to explain. Or not. GO FUCK YOUR MOTHER!Just watch. If you do this, this watch is yours.Bye the way, you can call me Eddie.

Will K (it) wrote: It was OK, but I was expecting better from the summary ("ten years in the making..."). The camera work was shoddy compared to other documentaries I've seen (I was expecting cinematic, but instead it was amateur quality), and they did little to present any view of why China actually WANTS to keep a hold of Tibet (they briefly mentioned "vast" mineral deposits, but there was no detail), a major point in actually trying to understand the "conflict". Instead the film takes a one-sided tack of "you should be outraged" which did not do the situation justice. In summary, I appreciated the footage and interviews, but I felt like a historical or educational format would have been more effective than the propagandist tone the film takes.

Michael R (kr) wrote: I have a soft spot for vampire films and Stake Land might be one of the best offerings the vampire genre has ever given us. A dark tale of dread set against a post apocalyptic backdrop, Stake Land is about loss and what it means to be human. It's moving, tense and damn entertaining. This film is made for those looking to watch a vampire flick with something more on it's mind than menacing cloaks, sexy blood-covered coeds and sharp fangs.
Dan A (us) wrote: There's a fine line between being "inspired" by a director, and totally ripping one off. This is like a Wes Anderson fan film that copies everything about his visual style and attempts to copy his dry narcissistic characters but falls well short of both. It's a shame the director didn't just concentrate on making the best film he could, because he has a good cast in Jason Bateman and Olivia Wilde, but he was clearly so transfixed with being Wes Anderson mark 2.
